Affection for Xinjiang
Deans Hall Gallery, Building SA, Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Yan Li (curator), Huo Wei, Chen Yuan-ming

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 1, to Wed, Oct 31 2012

Two photographers look at different aspects of Xinjiang China. The Kirghiz falcons and the 3000-year-old cottonwoods are explored. Chen Yuan-ming explores a thrilling "ground war" was held in Sumutashi Township, the "falcon town" of Akqi County in Xinjiang, China. Falcon domestication of Kirghiz tribe has a long history, and now Akqi County retains approximately 2000 falcons and large birds of prey. Photographer Huo Wei focuses on that which is the most keenly felt as the apocalypse of every religion - life and death. But when one sees those intertwined cottonwoods, living and dead, new young shoots emerge from the dead, only this rebirth of things is of the highest standard, and all individuals seem to pale in comparison. Ah! Cottonwoods are said to live for three thousands years, to stand three thousand more after their death, and to remain unchanged upon the ground for three thousand more after having fallen. How grand!

Presented by High Noon Culture.
